Following the success of the album 'Wien', esteemed tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, returns with a DVD and BluRay release of 'Mein Wein'. This is Jonas Kaufmann's deeply personal tribute to the world-famous melodies from Vienna, the birthplace of waltz and operetta and follows up the album release from Fall 2019. The 100-minute film consists of Jonas Kaufmann's Wiener Konzerthaus concert interspersed with documentary-style segments where Jonas Kaufmann explores the city's fascinating lighter musical heritage.

'Wien' features a stunning collection of operetta hits and Viennese songs composed between 1870 and 1950. Kaufmann teams up with the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Adam Fischer. His concert from the Wiener Konzerthaus includes well-known Viennese songs like “Wien, Wien nur du allein”, “Im Prater blühn wieder die Bäume”, “Sag beim Abschied leise 'Servus'”. He also sings scenes from famous operettas such as The Merry Widow, Wiener Blut and Die Fledermaus where soprano Rachel Willis-Sørensen joins him on the duets. The city also inspired many timeless songs including Robert Stolz's “Im Prater blühn wieder die Bäume” and Rudolf Sieczyński's “Wien, Wien nur du allein”, Hans May's “Heut ist der Schönste Tag”; Hermann Leopoldi's “In einem kleinen Café in Hernals” and Georg Kreisler's “Der Tod muss ein Wiener sein” - to name a few of these charming songs championed down the years by the tenor-greats such as Richard Tauber, Rudolf Schock and Fritz Wunderlich.

Kaufmann has won numerous prestigious awards including Gramophone Awards and Echo Klassik Awards.

“The most dramatic piece that Berlioz ever wrote,” is how conductor John Nelson describes La Damnation de Faust. The composer designated this thrilling hybrid of oratorio and opera a 'légende dramatique'. Following in the triumphant footsteps of Les Troyens, also recorded at the Auditorium Erasme in Strasbourg, this performance reunites Nelson and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg with singers Michael Spyres, Joyce DiDonato and Nicolas Courjal.

“The most dramatic piece that Berlioz ever wrote,” is how conductor John Nelson describes La Damnation de Faust. Based on Goethe's Faust and first performed in 1846, it is an epic hybrid of oratorio and opera - a 'légende dramatique' according to the composer, who recognised that its greatest potential lay in firing the audience's imagination: “Music has great wings,” he said, “but the walls of a theatre do not allow it to spread them to the full.”

This recording was made in the Auditorium Erasme in Strasbourg in April 2019, two years after Nelson, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg and a superb cast including Joyce DiDonato, Michael Spyres and Nicolas Courjal brought Berlioz's Les Troyens to life in the same venue. The associated Erato recording of the huge two-part opera has gone on to win unalloyed praise and multiple major prizes. As the New York Times wrote: “Berlioz's epic opera has rarely been given such luxury treatment as in this magnificent live recording from France.”

Facce d'amore, 'Faces of love' follows Jakub Józef Orliński's first solo album, Anima Sacra, which moved Gramophone magazine to announce that “This is a voice with a big future.” It brings a switch from the sacred to the personal and passionate. As the Polish-born, New York-trained countertenor says, the programme - which includes eight world premiere recordings - comprises “operatic arias that tell a story, showing a musical picture of a male lover in the baroque era - not only the positive side, like joyful or reciprocated love, but also anger or even madness.”

Facce d'amore, 'Faces of love', is the second solo album from countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński. It follows Anima Sacra, released in 2018, an Erato debut which moved Gramophone magazine to announce that “This is a voice with a big future,” and The Sunday Times, having extolled the “the unearthly beauty of Orliński's tone, his pearly coloratura and fabulous breath control,” to say, “He's only 28, but this is a special voice to look out for.”

The new album brings a switch from the sacred to the personal and passionate. As the Polish-born, New York-trained singer explains: “On Anima Sacra I wanted to take listeners on a spiritual journey through an entire programme based on sacred music of the 18th century. The idea behind Facce d'amore is a bit different.”

A great deal has happened in Jakub Józef Orliński's career since the release of Anima Sacra, which has taken his name around the world. The New Yorker magazine has summed him up with the headline “A millennial countertenor's pop-star appeal”, while his assumption of the title role

Esteemed tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, returns with his sensational new album 'WIEN'. This must-have album showcases the crowd-pleasing evergreens that turned Vienna into a beloved capital of classical music. 'WIEN' features a stunning collection of operetta hits and Viennese songs composed between 1870 and 1950 - Kaufmann teams up with the world renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Adam Fisher. Vienna's heyday for operetta produced stage-hits such as Johann Strauß's 'Komm in die Gondel' (from Eine Nacht in Venedig / A Night in Venice) the 'Clock Duet' from Die Fledermaus and the 'Title duet' from Wiener Blut, as well as Franz Léhar's 'Lippen Schweigen' from The Merry Widow. The city also inspired many timeless songs including Robert Stolz's 'Im Prater blühn wieder die Bäume' and Rudolf Siecznski's 'Wien, Wien nur du allein', Hans May's 'Heut ist der Schönste Tag'; Hermann Leopoldi's 'In einem kleinen Café in Hernals' and Georg Kreisler's 'Der Tod muss ein Wiener sein' - to name a few of these charming songs championed down the years by the tenor-greats such as Richard Tauber, Rudolf Schock & Fritz Wunderlich - Kaufmann has won numerous prestigious awards including Gramophone Awards and Echo Klassik Awards.

Sol y vida is Elīna Garanča'sjourney to the South, from Spain to Italy and Latin America, and is her first album focusing entirely on non core-classical repertoire.

Be ready to expect a personal album from the mezzo-soprano, whose centre of life has been Spain for many years. A selection of songs, canzone and tango pieces, both mirroring and spreading a flamboyantly emotional array of beaming happiness, passionate longing and exuberant joy. A feast of vocal colours, and a firework of passion, from the well-known Granada to the intimate world of La Llorona.

Featuring jewels of Latin American song repertoire like Piazolla's Yo soy Maria, originally part of a tango operita and Gracias a la vida, one of the most covered Latin American songs in history both featuring guitarist Jose Maria Gallardo del Rey in new intimate arrangements. Many of the popular pieces have mainly been sung by tenors, like “Core 'ngrato”, which was probably written for Caruso or the popular Neapolitan songs “Torna a surriento” or “Canto napoletano”.
